Festival start: 18 February 2023      Festival end: 18 February 2023

We strive to give a platform for the best of indie horror, celebrating the most creative ideas of up-and-coming indie horror filmmakers, digital art creators, actors, and artists of all forms. And we wanna help you get to the next level in your film journey!

Direct? Write? Produce? Act? Model? Have a monologue? We want to see it!

This festival was inspired to honor the life of actor and military veteran, Maria Ortiz, who committed suicide. We honor her memory by the creation of a small scholarship for a female military veteran in need. Want to nominate someone for the fiscal sponsorship?

We would love to have you!
Best films will also have the option to be in an anthology to get distribution.
